What a cute cake! I made this for my daughter's 5 year old Pirate party. I ended up making 2 of them since one would probably feed 10-12 people. So easy to do. My kids more

What You Need

pkg.  (4 oz.) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped
cup  whipping cream
pkg.  (12 oz.) prepared pound cake
cup  powdered sugar
 yellow candy-coated chocolate pieces
 candy necklace
 candy bracelet
 foil-wrapped chocolate coins
pieces   red string licorice (6 inches each)
 vanilla wafers, crushed

Make It

MICROWAVE chocolate and cream in large microwaveable bowl on MEDIUM (50%) 2 to 3 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1-1/2 min. Cool slightly. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating with electric mixer on high speed until mixture is well blended and of desired spreading consistency.

USE a serrated knife to cut off top one third of cake. Set top aside. Place bottom of cake on large serving platter; spread with chocolate frosting. Scatter candies and some of the coins around cake as desired. Replace top of cake; spread with the remaining chocolate frosting to resemble a treasure chest.

DECORATE top of chest with string licorice and some of the remaining candies. Sprinkle wafer crumbs onto platter to resemble sand. Arrange any remaining coins and candy in "sand." Store in refrigerator.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
Have fun with your kids making this special cake, and then teach them about portion control.
How to Frost A Cake
If the cake is very soft and crumbly, apply a “crumb coating” to prevent cake crumbs from mixing with the frosting. Spread a thin layer of frosting over the entire cake, then let stand 5 to 10 min. or until frosting is set. Spread remaining frosting over cake.
